Minnesota MDS Coordinators: The current Case Mix Classification Manual for Nursing Facilities has been updated with a new name and we have combined the CMR Portal Instructions into Appendix E of this manual.

The Case Mix Review Program has also released a new CMR Portal were facilities can access the CMR checklists, classification notices, and reports.

Both links are available on the Case Mix Review Program Website.

This Minnesota Case Mix Manual for Nursing Facilities describes the Minnesota Case Mix Classification System and includes information specific to the Minnesota Case Mix System.  Facilities need to utilize the resources included in this manual to assure they have the most up-to date information related to Case Mix and the MDS. The Minnesota Case Mix System is authorized by Minnesota Statutes §144.0724.

The Minnesota Case Mix System relies on the data collected by the federal Minimum Data Set (MDS) – Version 3.0. Completion of the Minimum Data Set (MDS) must follow the instructions in the Long-Term Care Facility Resident Assessment Instrument User’s Manual Version 3.0.
